The city of Katowice has signed an agreement with BGK Nieruchomości, which implements the Mieszkanie Plus government programme. On this basis, the municipality handed over a property on which approximately 1 000 apartments will be built.
The property is located east from Gospodarcza St. and covers the area of about 5 hectares. BGK Nieruchomości, which is a subsidiary of the state owned Bank Gospodarstwa Krajowego, will be responsible the construction and management of the apartment buildings. All of the units will be destined for lease. The government wants the apartments to be cheap – the rent should not exceed PLN 24 per one square meter per month.
The municipality of Katowice will hand over the plots and will build a new road to link the new estate with Szopienicka St. It would cost approximately PLN 10 million.
A resolution concerning the Mieszkanie Plus programme was adopted by the Council of Ministers at the end of September this year. Apart from Katowice, properties for investment projects were secured in Biała Podlaska, Chorzów, Dębica, Gliwice, Kobyłka, Nowa Dęba, Pelplin, Poznań, Radom, Skawina, Stalowa Wola, Starogard Gdański, Trzebinia, Tychy, Wałbrzych and Września. However, the programme is far more advanced in Katowice – BGK Nieruchomości and the City Hall signed the agreement, while the remaining cities signed only letter of intents.
Start of construction works is expected not earlier than in the late 2017.
